    I have some components that need to be spaced closely to each other. I
    was wondering how I can re-position the name / value text of these
    components. It seems the name / value of the components are anchored to
    the position of the component.

  2. Ron,

    First, you will likely get better responses from the Eagle dedicated
    news groups - and eagle.userchat.eng which you can
    access directly at

    Second, if you use the "Smash" command on the componets after you place
    them in a schematic or board, you can then move the name and value texts
    anywhere you want.

    Thanks, James!

    I tried searching for Eagle in Google Groups, but I guess it doesn't
    have it listed. I'm posting via Google.

    I tried searching for Eagle in Google Groups,
    You're right. It's not archived there.

    The CadSoft newsgroups are VERY valuable for an EAGLE newbie.
    This is where a real newsreader is handy.

    You will need access to Port 119 from yor ISP
    and a NNTP provider that is worth a damn (perhaps your ISP again).
    BTW, EAGLE is an initialism for Easily Applicable Graphical Layout
    and properly is all caps.

    Hi all,

    I want to build a board with a DSP, a codec and 4 microphones with a
    battery supply. I would like to do the schematic using the EAGLE
    software and this is the first time that I am using EAGLE. I tried do
    some simple schematic as explained in a online tutorial. And I am
    using the BF533 and AD1863 codec. so how do Igo about drawing the
    schematic? I need some guidance regarding the same. I hope to here from
    you all at the earliest.

    Thank you all in advance
